Hi.

Appearing for the GMAT in the next 20 days.

I have been taking GMAT Manhattan Mocks recently and I have not been faring well. Need some tips for damage control. Looking to hit a score of 650 plus. Kindly help!

I have attached my gmat mock trajectory.

Hi. Don't worry. You still have time :)

I would suggest that you should now take a GMAT Prep test as they are more closer to the real test. Manhattan quant is tougher than GMAT quant (I have heard so).

Focus on your weak areas in GMAT which usually give you trouble and topics which are very important. For example, let's say you are getting major questions wrong in number properties and this is one of the major topics in GMAT. Then practice it. I think that will help.


Rest..... experts know better.

Good Luck.

Thank you so much for your response.
I did attempt GMAT prep test 1 and scored 590 on the test.
This was before the manhattan tests.

I do struggle with DS problems pertaining to inequalities. Also CR is fairly weak area.

Hi

It is better to focus on CATs, take CATs with reasonable intervals
Take CATs review each and every Questions, know why your answer
is wrong, Trace your Mistake and try to overcome.
Learn from your mistakes, build your Stemina to sit for 4 hours for
the real thing. Focus on your timing also.

Good Luck

hi maryamtheleadr,

You need to dig down deep into each problem type and understand the issue:

SC: The questions test various concepts such as S-V agreement, modifiers, parallelism etc. Find out what troubles you. As a general guide line, you can start solving a question by taking the following things in consideration:

1. Find out the subject and the verb
2. See that the S&V agree in number
3. Look out for the modifiers
4. Look out for parallelism
5. Look out for usage of certain words - such as vs like, few vs less etc.

CR: There might be certain types of questions that are troubling you. May be Assumption, may be conclusion, inference etc.
You need to find that out and then practice them
RC: This again can be drilled down into different types of questions and also different topics. See what questions and topics trouble you the most and then practice accordingly.
Quants: Again try to break the questions in topics such as Algebra, Number system (very important), Geometry, PnC etc.

As an addition, start preparing an error log and keep a note of all the mistakes you made and the lessons you learnt from the problems. This will ensure you do not make the same mistake again.

Hi maryamtheleadr,

MGMAT Quant is much harder than the real one so I would recommend try to give a GMATPREP Exam to determine your score in Quant. Verbal on the other hand is quite on par so I would recommend focus on verbal. E-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live are both amazing courses that can really help you improve your scores.

However, given how close your GMAT date is, I personally do not think one should adopt any new method on the final leg of their GMAT Preparation. It may be nice to give a couple of mocks (the official ones) and work on your weaknesses, but trying something new might not work in anyone’s favour. However if you want to improve on any individual area such as Sentence Correction, you may subscribe to the individual SC course as you can finish the whole course in 10 days (with proper dedication). If however you are only looking to indentify and improve on your weak areas, I would encourage you to purchase the e-gmat scholaranium. It is without a doubt, one of the best practice tools for verbal and will indeed help you on the final leg of your preparations.
Hope this helps. All the best.
